I’ve been working on a zoo series of animal portraits. I want to capture the animals in dramatic lighting situations. It’s not easy to do. We all know the best light is early morning or evening, but the zoo isn’t open during those hours. So I spend a lot of time sitting around the zoo waiting for an animal to wander into whatever light is available. Finally, after numerous trips to the zoo, thousands of unacceptable shots, and hours of waiting, I got one shot of the kind I’m looking for. This is the one.
